DiSC assessment, a behavioral assessment is important for businesses and other

organizations to determine employees and managers leadership strengths and

weaknesses. It aims to provide more self-awareness and insight, potentially improving

operations and teamwork. In this webinar, the speaker will show us how new research has changed the way we facilitate and talk about everything DiSC:

  • Understand the technical aspects of the model
  • Network and understand other DiSC professionals and how they have been

successful in using this model

  • Opportunity to build your brand as an expert in this field.
  • Get access to a plethora of DiSC tools

Key Takeaways

Challenges with Behavioral Change:

  • Self Awareness
    • We have a tendency to perceive everything through biases, manipulating information
    • Leaders come in with a stroked ego.
    • We usually get blanket feedback, painted with a broad brush.

So what needs to be changed? 

Change Dynamics

An activity where the non-dominant hand was conducted to understand change dynamics. We go back to our behavioral style when faced with stressful situations. If we can figure out someone’s behavioral style, we can also find out their behavioral challenges. 

Why use DISC?

DiSC profiles can help you understand your own behavioral priorities. The rich narrative of all the Everything DiSC assessments is a powerful tool that provides an in-depth analysis of your behavioral priorities. It gives insights into the strengths and challenges of each style and can pave the way for sustained self-improvement.

Knowing the behavioral style of people around us can bridge gaps in our understanding and result in true empathy. It enables people to recognize the behavioral styles of other people.

The final and most critical outcome of DiSC-based training is behavioral flexibility. Self-awareness and understanding others is not adequate, what leads to effectiveness is being able to flex your behavior based on the priorities of other people.

“The Everything DiSC assessment has been developed and validated on adults 18 years or older and is appropriate for this population. It is a non-clinical assessment, designed to support personal development and professional relationship in a work setting.”
